Adventures Abound Starting at Sunriver Resort

Sunriver is the type of place that takes your breath away no matter what season it is. During the summer you can hop on a horse for your very own wild wild west experience.

The team at Sunriver Stables will make you feel comfortable on your ride, even if you’ve never saddled up before. Whether you’re in a tube or a kayak, floating down the Deschutes River is a relaxing activity that’s fun for the whole family.

No matter what time of year it is, you can shop tax-free in the Village at Sunriver. Here you’ll be able to stock up on gifts for loved ones back home or maybe pick up a few things for a new hobby inspired by your stay.

When you hit the links in Sunriver, you have the opportunity to play Crosswater, a Golf Digest Top 100 course.

Near Sunriver, the Lava Lands Visitor Center offers a fascinating look at how Central Oregon’s rugged landscape was shaped. Did you know before NASA sent man to the moon, they tested astronaut suits here?! They needed to mimic the surface they thought the crew would encounter on the moon and Lava Lands provided the place!

Just a little further down the road, the High Desert Museum is a Central Oregon gem. Kids and adults alike fall in love with the experience of being up close and personal with some of the animals that call the High Desert home.

In and around Sunriver, there’s so much to discover… you might just find out something new about yourself and your family when you stay here.
